the president of the united states turned out to be a dlib fabrication because for sduecury reasons he made a trip under the veil of secrecy. this is standard operating procedure for presidents visiting america's various war zones. shortly after the 2008 election in which he was elected president, after the election but before the new president had been sworn in in december of 2008, then still president george w. bush took one of these surprise trips the, unannounced trips to background. it was december 14th, 2008. that's when this happened. >> yes. everybody calm down for a minute. first of all, thank you for apologizing on behalf of the iraqi people. it doesn't bother me. if you want the facts, it's a size 10 shoe that he threw. >> boy, if you were not surprised enough to find out that the president had surprise, gone to iraq, the president having a shoe hurled at him was definitely a surprise that day. when you look at the official transcript from this, we posted a link to it on our blog tonight. when you go through the transcript of this event, when you get to the part where the guy thr
was in baghdad was to sign the agreement which committed the united states to end our war in iraq. it was an agreement that president obama then followed through on. the last u.s. troops left iraq in december. today, in afghanistan it was not a status of forces agreement. it was called a strategic partnership agreement between the u.s. and afghan government but the idea is the same. it's to commit both countries to a plan by which the united states will end our war there. >> today i signed an agreement between the united states and afghanistan that defines a new relationship between our countries. a future in which afghans are responsible for the security of their nation and we build an equal partnership between two states. as we move forward some people will ask why we need a firm timeline. the answer is clear. our goal is not to build a country in america's image or to eradicate the taliban. these objectives would require in many years, many more dollars and most importantly many more american lives. our goal is to destroy al qaeda and we on path to do exactly that. afghans want
the united states and afghanistan over the next decade. and will include sort of the outline for the withdrawal plan. we expect the president to address the nation and u.s. troops at 7:31 our time. that's a speech that will last for about 10 to 15 minutes, martin. and we will, of course, be carrying that live. president obama has arrived in afghanistan. he is meeting with afghanistan president hamid karzai. of course, this all comes on the one-year anniversary of the killing of osama bin laden. certainly this timing is not coincidental but president obama there to discuss the strategic partnership with the president of afghanistan, including the plan for withdrawal. >> and do you know anything or any detail yet about how this was carried out? because we knew absolutely nothing about it. the president clearly leaving the white house. i mean, i'm assuming that somebody must have known. what do we know about the detail of that? >> well, we know that of course, senior administration officials were aware of this plan. but the white house certainly keeping this a secret throughout
that people take a look at peel's previous statements. the united states has conducted an operation that killed osama bin laden. >> we have breaking news at this very moment. we understand the president is in afghanistan. this on the first anniversary of the killing of osama bin laden. we understand that he traveled there overnight. there was something of a "meet the press" and media blackout but we are able to confirm the president is indeed in afghanistan. i'm joined now by kristen welker who is at the white house. please tell us what do you know? what have you heard? >> hi there. good afternoon to you. we can tell you that president obama arrived in afghanistan in kabul at 2:39 p.m. our time, which is 11:09 in afghanistan. right now, he is at the afghan presidential palace with president hamid karzai. we're just getting this information so i'll read it to you. he is there to sign the strategic partnership agreement which is essentially going to outline the relationship between the united states and afghanistan over the next decade. and will include sort of the outline for the wit
. it's to commit both countries to a plan by which the united states will end our war there. >> today i signed an agreement between the united states and afghanistan that defines a new relationship between our countries. a future in which afghans are responsible for the security of their nation and we build an equal partnership between two states. as we move forward some people will ask why we need a firm timeline. the answer is clear. our goal is not to build a country in america's image or to eradicate the taliban. these objectives would require in many years, many more dollars and most importantly many more american lives. our goal is to destroy al qaeda and we on path to do exactly that. afghans want to assert their sovereignty and build a lasting peace. the agreement we signed today sends a clear message to the afghan people. as you stand up, you will not stand alone. within this framework we'll work with the afghans to determine what support they need to accomplish two narrow security missions beyond 2014. counter terrorism, and continued training. we will not build permanent base
president of the united states of america. the president sets the policy. i am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women and heterosexual -- men and women marrying all are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties and, quite frankly, i don't see much of a distinction beyond that. >> those words sparked a quick response, not from republicans, but from the president's own campaign. what the vp said that all married couples should have the same legal rights is precisely potus' position. that's exactly what david axelrod tweeted, so the vice president gets out in front of his boss on an issue that on the ballot tuesday in north carolina, a presidential battleground state. a biden gaffe or is it a trial balloon? the answer depends on who you ask, and we'll get much more into this debate coming up in moments right here on cnn. meantime, there's a major shift in the halls of power for a key u.s. ally. france's new president is a socialist. francois hollande beat conservative incumbent nicolas sarkozy in sunday's ru
canada to the united states, this must get permission from the president of the united states and there has to be an environmental impact statement to make sure it wouldn't have an adverse impact on the environment. everybody's in favor of that. republicans, democrats. no one want wants to hurt the environment. so in the great wisdom, i say very sarcastically of our government, the state department has sent it to transcanada, the environmental impact statement. they hire a company that they routinely do business that has every reason to curry favor and be light on the environmental impact statement so the proposal goes forward. it's sending the fox to guard the chicken coop. none of that was revealed second quarter when it came back, plane people were suspicious of it. to me, it's like, who is the -- who is the fool who thought that was a good idea to get an environmental impact statement from a company with a business relationship with the one who is want to build it? >> well, greta, you know, everyone wants energy to be as clean as it can be made, as fast as it can be made i
right now. a short time later, just about half an hour ago, mr. obama spoke to the united states laying out his vision for ending america's longest war. saying afghanistan is where the war began and where it will end. here's a portion of his address. >> today i signed a historic agreement between the united states and afghanistan that defines a new kind of relationship between our countries. a future in which afghans are responsible for the security of their nation and we build an equal partnership between two sovereign states. a future in which war ends and new chapter begins. ten years ago, the united states and our allies went to war to make sure that al qaeda could never again use this country to launch attacks against us. despite initial success, for a number of reasons, this war has taken longer than most anticipated. over the last three years, the tide has turned. we broke the taliban's momentum. we built strong afghan security forces. we devastated al qaeda's leadership, taking out over 20 of their leaders. one year ago, from the base here in afghanistan, our troops launched the
the united states will be involved in afghanistan after u.s. troops leave the country in 2014. >> i've come to afghanistan to mark a short moment for our two nations. to do so on afghan soil. i'm here to affirm the bonds between our countries, to thank american and afghans who have sacrificed so much over these last ten years and to look forward to a future of peace and security and greater prosperity for our nations. >> we can expect to hear more about in his president's address coming up shortly. he addressed u.s. forces at the air babes and waded in the crowd for hand shakes, thanked them for all the sacrifices they have made. he said he could not be more proud to be their chief. ed, we're getting dribbles from the white house what the president will say tonight. >> we got a preview from the president himself as soon as me landed in afghanistan, basically he made some quick remarks we're saying that we did not choose this war. it came to us on 9/11. he also said the battle is not over but this is the beginning of the end basically of america's longest war. we got a preview there and also
republican seat. she will be a terrific general election candidate and a great addition to the united states senate. >> caller: she is running against a war hero, bob kerry, who is very popular. so this will be fascinating. >> it is interesting, the polls shower, even as not well known as she was, beating kerry handily, in large part because he has spent the better part of a decade, living in new york city, contemplating a run for mayor in new york city. that's not a good way to get favor in nebraska. >> greta: coming up, vice-president joe biden gets very loud. what got him so riled up? you have to hear the fiery speech. next. obamacare or no care? some college students are going to end up with no insurance. and the university president says the president's health care law is to blame. preliminary rivals or frenemmies. chris christie is teaming up with a democratic mayor. what is the duo up to? you have to see it to believe it. you do not want to miss this. what makes sam adams boston lager great is as simple as abc. a, the appearance. amber.

to mark a year since the killing of usama bin laden by blowing up a jet headed to the united states. the device, a new and improved underwear bomb. that's according to sources at the white house and on capitol hill. now, remember an underwear bomb failed to blow up a plane headed for detroit three years ago on christmas day. al qaeda in yemen came one a better detective ton nation system. al qaeda reports it has that new bomb and that experts are now analyzing it but they are warning of another intelligence stream. they say they there may be more of these bombs and more of these bombers out there right now. more on that in a moment. officials say the device they recovered does not contain any metal at all. so it could have gotten through our airport metal detector system. no word on whether those new body scanners would have caught it the secretary of defense put it this way: >> what this incident makes clear is that this continue to remain vigilant against those it would seek to attack this country. and we will do everything necessary to keep america safe. >> there is more. just la
a former united states senator, an experienced nationally known sober steady republican named richard nixon is running for president. he wins in 1968. he wins re-election in 1972. he never makes it to the end of the second term because of a little complication called watergate. in 1968 he was at the height of his appeal and he was a communist. see his campaign slogan, forward together. see the slogan at the bottom. bushy haired richard nixon communist. the slogan indicates he's a communist because today's conservatives say so. i thought this was debunked already but conservatives even know, this is from last night on glen beck's internet tv show conservatives are still stuck on this. president obama's web video that came out ended with this slogan forward. the right just went nuts that the word forward was the obama campaign's way of signaling that it is marxist. it seems to impose the economic system by karl marx on america. richard nixon forward together, communist. also the washington, d.c. metro system is communist. and the state of wisconsin which has an awesome flag. the
a request to leave china. he said he wanted to go to the united states. he said he could like to leave with hillary clinton on her plane. she's there for high level meetings. as we reported last night he phoned into an emergency congressional hearing that was called to discuss his case. he reiterated in the phone call that he wanted help from secretary clinton. it's all very dramatic. last night when we left this story it was totally up in the air as to what would happen on this today. the clock is ticking. today there does seem to be progress toward a new deal that could get him out of china and to the united states in way that did not escalate this any further. apparently he's now been offered a fellowship at nyu's law school. china said they will consider his request to become a student or a visiting lecturer. the u.s. government say they expect the request to be expedited. this is happening in the shadow of hillary clinton being in china. he's expected to depart on saturday local time but beijing is 12 hours ahead of east coast. she will be leaving momentarily. she will be leaving
there and if the chinese government ends up having to give him back or let him go to the united states, such a public problem, for them, that they're going to crack down much harder on those who remain? >> well, erin, china's an oppressive regime, and chen guangcheng has been part of being on the end of the repression that exists in china. so any time that we give, you know, an opportunity to a chinese dissident, either to come into our embassy or to try to negotiate as we are doing in this case, for him to come to the united states with his family, the reality is, that regime is going to still be there and it's going to continue to oppress its people. that's why speaking up about human rights in a more broader discussion is incredibly important. >> and maybe a silver lining here. talking to people who spent significant time in china for these situations, they say to their knowledge there's never been a dissident who came into the u.s. embassy basically released on to the streets? resolved another way. they come to the united states, for example. the u.s. was under incredible pressure to resolve this
the united states make it worse for the other disdissidents? even if there is a decision in this case? on the foreign relations committee, and, of course, you just saw video covering the story since the beginning, spoken to all the players. both "outfront" this evening. the past 48 hours, you barely slept as you've been talking to all the players. been intimidated yourself. how tense is the environment in beijing and are you hearing even if we could get a resolution in the case of chen that there could be a broader crackdown on dissidents? >> reporter: erin, extraordinarily tense and it's been that way for the past year. this is a leadership transition year in china. only happens once every ten years and they wanted to orchestrate this with absolutely no problems. frankly, it's blown up in their face not just with this case but others as well. just overnight more man 20 journalists, international journalists were called in and given this warning. if you continue to go to the hospital where chen is being held, you will have your visas revoked and have to leave the country. we know that
administration is allowing children who are not citizens of the united states to come across the border into your state unlawfully? >> about 80% of all of these unaccompanied minors are coming in across texas border. you go back and illegal immigration has been an issue for many years here. compounded by the drug cartels realizing that the mexican u.s. border they could operate without impunity. they have operational control on some sides of the border. we have 23 citizens in mexico most likely, i don't know if they have been identified yet, cartel battle going on there. you have the illegal immigration issue and compound it with the drug cartels. then a new phenomenon we are seeing now. this is within the last six months or so. we've seen 5200 unaccompanied young people, we're talking to 8 to 9-year-olds that are coming from south america and we don't know all the details yet about how mexico is dealing with this. they are coming to the texas border and crossing the border. and taking them into refugee resettlement, vast majority we had 1400 of them in just in march that showed up with health pr
with the president of the united states since he took the oath of office? >> they haven't had any. the president was clear that reverend wright's views that were played again and again didn't reflect the president's views. >> critics want to know if barack obama assimilated sinister view s of jeremiah wright. they try to create a direct line. the attack dog exposed by the new york city created story boards to show how barack obama undermined the united states of america because he was influenced by jeremiah wright. they say he's apologized for america. >> president obama's foreign policy is one that america is another nation with flag. president obama apologizes for america. it's time for us to be strong as a nation. >> it's not true. president obama has never apologized for america and he sure hasn't been shy in taking out its enemies. if president obama answered questioned about jeremiah wright four years ago and he hasn't had contact with him since, why bring him up now. here is sean hannity. >> i think he's far more in view than he let ons. i think he hides his true believes because i think
reverend wright had with the president of the united states since he took the oath of office? >> you know, they haven't had any. president obama was clear that mr. right's views didn't reflect the president's views. this required moral leadership on mitt romney's part to stand up to the extreme voices in his party. once again, he didn't rise to the occasion. one of the things he tried to do today is equate this hateful attack with a simple discussion of governor romney's economic record we had in this campaign. we've seen this from romney before. he didn't stand up to one of the symbolic heads of the republican party, rush limbaugh when he made those hateful comments against sandra fluke. we've been clear whether supporter of the president or person that used this rhetoric, and romney didn't stand up. >> he said he repudiated this style of campaign. do you believe him? >> he was asked later in the day about his comments earlier in the year about reverend wright you played not too long ago. he said he stood behind them. time and time again, he had the opportunity to stand up to the extreme
the future of this great nation, and all nations. >> did the united states make it worse for the other dissidents? even if there's a solution to the chase of chen. we'll find out now. robert menendez, stan grant who you saw in the video, he shot there, he's been covering the story from the beginning, spoken to all the players. they're both outfront know. stan, i know over the past 48 hours, you have barely slept. as you have been talking to all the players. you have been intimidated yourself. how intense is the environment in beijing? even if we get a resolution in the case of chen that there could be a broader crackdown on dissidents? >> erin, extraordinarily tense, it's been way that way for the year. this is a leadership transition year in china. they wanted to orchestrate this with no problems. frankly it's blown up in their face. not just with this case but other cases as well. just overnight more than 20 journalists were called in and given this warning. if you continue to go to the hospital where chen is being held, you will have your visas revoke and have to leave the country.
in the history of the united states in the white house. they are really em em player. the way they behave with their children tore me is admiral. there's a great family. and romney probably has a great family. but family is not -- >> all i meant to say, there are two things that is animate his life and he's uncomfortable talking about both of them. if you're running a presidential campaign and your candidate talk in a human compelling way about the two most important aspects of their life which is to say creating profitable businesses and his church, you have a huge strategic problem on your hands. you need your candidate to be able to talk about things that animate him. he's afraid of those things whether he's personally uncomfortable with them or the politics is a problem for him -- >> did you hear maggie haberman just saying correct? >> i love it when she does it. it makes me feel so affirmed. >> let me just -- mr. lipton as we talk about source material, whether it's the mormon church, the things one reads, the influences creatively on one's life are things to call upon. mitt romney's
consequence and he'll come to the united states. andrea, i have to also -- >> i just wanted to play a little bit of what hillary clinton said in china this morning and then have you react to it. >> all of our efforts with mr. chen have been guided by his choices and our values. and i'm pleased that today, our ambassador has spoken with him again. our embassy staff and our doctor had a chance to meet with him. and he confirms that he and his family now want to go to the united states so he can pur u his studies. >> are you satisfied because clearly hillary clinton is going to leave for bangladesh then on to india. so this is going to take a couple of days at least for the paperwork. it's going to be the immediate family, not his mother, not the extended family. i understand he's going to be coming to nyu. are you satisfied with the agreement if he able so leave in a matter of days or a short amount of time? >> it's a step in the right direction. i do believe the ball was dropped largely in the begin and this groundswell of support, it was untenable to think he would find a safe place somewher
wanted to make clear that i was solidly behind him in order to make him president of the united states. >> greta: okay. it's clear that you are supporting the republican nominee. have you thrown your support behind governor romney. what is the reason why you don't support president obama? what is the difference between the two parties, the two candidates as we approach november? >> here again, it's real simple. governor romney gets it right on the big issues. president obama get its wrong on the big issues. governor romney understands what it's going to take to boost this economy to a growth rate that this economy is capable of. no policies of president obam have boosted the economy. we are now at something less than 2%. that's not what our economy is capable of. governor romney get its right on energy independence. he knows and has stated that we can maximize all of our energy resources in this country to become energy independent. everything that president obama does seems to be opposite of that. and then the other thing that governor romney get its right on is he wants to repeal oba
was for it personally. he didn't say as president of the united states, personally. he saided that each state should make up its own decision which is a conservative view point states rights and the whole federalism. apparently process wise. >> that was a little twist i thought in the argument. he said one of the reasons he decided to come out hike this is because mitt romney called for a federal constitutional amendment saying at the federal level the constitution should ban gay marriage and he thinks it should be state bistate. as president that is not something that is likely to come to his desk. on the issue of gay marriage he is comfortable with it and think is states over time as the public opinion evolves will evolve with him. >> he won north carolina by half a percentage point last night. this year the democratic convention in north carolina and then you have last night's vote on the gay marriage constitutional amendment to the state constitution. what is the conventional wisdom of what this means for north carolina for this president? >> a couple of democrats felt like, north carolina, or m
. and as richard pointed out, the corruption, the unease of the relationship between the united states and karzai's afghanistan, and the fact that what is the ultimate goal? is it to bring a country that is now logged in perhaps -- >> let me stop you there. you just asked what's the ultimate goal. we have been asking foreign policy -- >> what is it? >> specialists on this set, administration officials, the late richard holbrook, everybody, for years, what's the goal in afghanistan? they don't have a goal in afghanistan. you know why? because it's not about afghanistan. it's about pakistan. this is -- it's ridiculous. we had a goal, and that goal was to rid afghanistan of al qaeda's power structure. we succeeded. >> right. >> and then we moved. then we moved the goal post. and now it's to rebuild a country with, again, we're going into another decade partnership with one of the most corrupt leaders on the planet. it makes no sense. we're wasting $2 billion a week. and young americans are dying every every week. >> you're right. we did move the goal post in afghanistan from essentially getting rid
to him. >> eduardo saverin wants to de-friend the united states of america just to avoid paying taxes. and we aren't going to let him get away with it. >> shepard: senator schumer are announcing legislation called the expatriot act. it would apply to anybody who has had to pay an average of $148,000 in income taxes. folks within that group who have renounced their citizenship in the last decade would have to prove they didn't do it just to avoid paying taxes. if they fail, the acted would flap a heavy tax on future u.s. investments and prevent them from ever again returning to the united states of america. the fox business network's peter barnes is live in washington. peter, this facebook co-founder's representative says is he going to pay everything he owes but it's not clear exactly what that means. >> well, shep, he does not get out of jail free. under existing tax law, saverin has to pay something called an exit tax, which everybody pays when they give up their u.s. citizenship. that would likely be 15% capital gains taxes on the value of his assets on the day before he renounced
's next. >> this is a fox news alert. the united states embassy in kabul, afghanistan, sounding its alarm, after a large explosion was heard in the city, less than two hours after president obama flew out of afghanistan tonight. we will bring you near more on the breaking news as we get it. tonight, donald rumsfeld is here and he says that u.s. special ops are the center of the campaign and says that that may be good for the candidates and not for the troops. he will tell you why. tonight, president obama under cover of night, take egg surprise trip to afghanistan afon the anniversary of bin laden's death. and another one. yes a new scandal and it could be the most despicable yet. the culprit, a high-ranking intelligence officer and there could be more. just in minutes. but first, one year after u.s. forces kill osama bin laden, president obama addressing the nation from afghanistan. >> some people will ask why we need a firm timeline. the answer's clear. our goal is not to build a country in america's image or to eradicate every vestige of the taliban. these objectives would require many
that affects only my district, in other districts in the united states, which signals out the residents of the district of columbia and say you women will not be subject to the constitutional mandate of roe versus wade. you alone can have an abortion only until 20 weeks. by the way, don't talk to us about how this violates the 14th amendment as well, which treats you differently from women in other states. not only are we going to try to impose that on you, but we don't want to hear from the only voice you have in the house, you have no voice in the senate, we shut her up, so we don't hear from d.c. residents at all. fortunately, we do have a young woman who has gone through this experience who has a very relevant story to show. but nobody who can speak for, who has been elected by the representatives of the district ofya columbia, an all-male panel will hear why they should have their roe versus wade with rights discussed tomorrow. >> in this case, he's specifically going after d.c., but he has pushed anti-abortion legislation every time he has the opportunity. why do you think somethi
